A man is dead following a snowmobile crash in Hartford, N.B., just outside of Woodstock.

RCMP say the 45-year-old man from Centreville was driving on a snowmobile trail in a wooded area north of Simcox Road, when it is believed that he lost control of the vehicle and collided with a tree Saturday night.

He was the only person on the snowmobile.

Members of the Western Valley Region RCMP, Woodstock Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick responded to the call at 8:15 p.m.

The man was transported to hospital where he later died. Police do not believe alcohol to be a factor in the crash.

The investigation is ongoing.
